Subject: Great story
I have listened to this story 2x, and it has lots of neat twists and turns in it to keep you guessing.

Mrs. Butterworth (not the syrup) lives next door to an affluent family. One night while they are away, a woman is murdered in that house. First one, then the other son stands accused, but Mrs. B decides to take a hand in the puzzle since she saw a few things that makes her think the police are on the wrong track.

So who is the woman that was murdered, why was she murdered, and what does the mysterious Ms. Oliver have to do with it?

It will have you listening intently. The quality of the recordings is excellent, and the reader is likewise excellent. Enjoy!

Subject: Excellent narration
This story was well narrated. I really believed that the narrator was Mrs. Buttersworth herself. The story over all was good. Toward the end I think it got a tad convoluted but then that seems to often be the venue of Anna Katherine Green. I would recommend this story, it kept me entertained.

Subject: Free Audio Review
I seem to be on a run of detective novels at the moment! In this one we have a real gem. An older lady notices some odd happenings next door during the night and feels drawn to investigate and finds herself investigating a murder.

It's a typical lead-in to a detective novel and follows many of the usual tropes, however dont let that make you think it's dull. The lead character is a delightful old world lady who wouldn't say boo to a goose and has to collect all of her bravery to simply address police inspectors let alone ensnaring murderers. This makes the character appealing and when the book is being read by a voice that seems to match the first person perspective of the character it really brings the book to life.

The combination of reader and text here is really good.

Subject: Wonderful
This was a great story and Dawn you done a great job bring it to life. I sat on the edge of my seat everyday at work while I listened. You have a great voice and you should record another story.
